(PICTURES) APC campaign group protests over Immigration tragedy compensation


Report gathered that the ‘I AM READY’ campaign organisation of the All Progressive Congress (APC), has chided the Federal Government for remembering to compensate relations of the Nigerian Immigration job tragedy, a year after the incident happened.

Speaking at a protest in Lekki, Lagos on Sunday to commemorate the incident, a medical doctor and member of the group, Dr. Wale Oyebanjo said the presidents action is a scam because it is belated and close to election period.

Oyebanjo explained that about 19 people died in the incident and the government belatedly decided to give them N5m each, amounting to N95m while it pockets the balance of the N6b it generated during the recruitment exercise.

“ Over N6b was paid by the job seekers and the government is paying N95m. That is a good business for them. We are here to say that we are tired of this deceit.

The People who also carried out the botched recruitment exercise have kept their jobs and were seen soldier to soldier with the President sharing out cheques to the families of the applicants who lost their lives.

That is why the volunteers came out en masse to say that on March 28, we are changing the leadership of this country. We are putting to an end corruption, unemployment and we are voting in the right set of people”, he declared.
